, the way it came to light, we have some information, the fbi was investigating threatening harassing e-mails, sent to an unknown woman, paula broadwell, he was involved. >> to keep it straight, she sent e-mails she thought may be getting too close to her man who is not her man to begin with because he's married, she's married. the fbi goes-- the woman with threatening e-mails, i'm getting threatening e-mails, the fbi checks it out and leads to general petraeus. >> alisyn: reportedly. >> dave: you don't want to read too far into this, but it looks like there's another woman, but no one has reported that as of yet and there are two stories emerging on when exactly the president was informed of all of this. now, the latest, most popular report that is, is that the president was told after the election on thursday, that the white house learned on wednesday, the president was told on thursday. >> how long was the-- >> the other report, the fbi knew about this months before. there's another report from ronald kessler of news max, that says the white house intentionally sat on this until afte
focus of an fbi investigation. andrea mitchell first broke this story. she has more on how the fbi inadvertently found out about the general's affair. >> reporter: general david petraeus tumbled from the highest levels of government service after act thcknowledgint he called unacceptable behavior, an extramarital affair. another woman not related to petraeus felt she was being harassed and complained to the fbi. in recent weeks, the fbi traced the e-mails to broadwell and only stumbled upon the relationship with petraeus as a result. >> it's so politically sensitive that my guess is the decision was made near or at the top level of the fbi to sit down with general petraeus and have a discussion with him and let him know that this information had been discovered. >> reporter: broadwell has not been shy about her access to petraeus, co-hosting a barbecue with jon stewart. she spoke often about her connection to the cia director acknowledging it rubbed some in the military the wrong way. >> i was imbedded with general petraeus in afghanistan and it was a little confusing because i'm a
of the extramarital affair he revealed in resigning from his post, a decision that came under the pressure from an f.b.i. investigation that threatened to make things even uglier, according to an intelligence community source who spoke to politico on the condition of anonymity. so tell us a little bit more, josh gerstein of the politico, tell us about this investigation by the f.b.i. and what's been the fallout so far in washington about the announcement that the general was going to resign from the c.i.a. guest: well, we still don't know too much of the detail about what was going on with the f.b.i. there are a lot of reports out there, and, in fact, it is true that part of this investigation by the f.b.i. had to do with the question of whether somebody was improperly accessing petraeus' personal email accounts. you know, however, the sources that we spoke to said that wasn't really the entirety of the investigation or the thing that really got it rolling. but at some point, for whatever reason, the f.b.i. became concerned that somebody was getting into his account. now, you can see a variety of reason
is reaching beyond washington this morning. >> his admitted affair was first discovered when the fbi discovered threatening e-mails when sent to a woman in florida. she's now identified as a married mother who works as an unpaid social liaison on an air force base. she says she and the general are family friends. more on her straight ahead, and we'll have a live interview with petraeus' former spokesman who talked with him over the weekend. and then we'll talk with the political fallout of all of this with the former speaker of the house newt gingrich. >> let's get to the news first and nbc's andrea mitchell. she is the one who first broke this story. andrea, good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. law enforcement officials say that it all began with a complaint to the fbi last summer from a family friend of david petraeus as a woman who said she was receiving anonymous computer threat. that launched an investigation that eviolently brought down a storied military career, changed the leadership of the cia and has congress questioning just how the fbi handled this sensitive ca

on the specifics of the investigation. the fbi has its own protocols in terms of how they proceed. and i'm going to let director mueller and others examine those protocols, and make some statements to the public generally. i do want to emphasize what i said before. general petraeus had an extraordinary career. deserved this country with great distinction in iraq, in afghanistan, and as head of the cia. by his own assessment, he did not meet the standards that he felt were necessary as the director of cia with respect to this personal matter that he is now dealing with, with his family, and with his wife. and it's on that basis that he tendered his resignation, and it's on that basis that i accepted it. but i want to emphasize that from my perspective at least, he has provided this country and extraordinary service. we are safer because of the work that dave petraeus has done, and my main hope right now is that he and his family are able to move on, and that this instead of being -- this into a being a single side note on what has been otherwise been an extraordinary career.
